My daughter is 6, almost 7, and in 1st grade. She has always been and wanted to be the center of attention. It was cute when she was 3 but now I am starting to wonder if it is more. She is always getting into trouble at school for excessive talking, distracting others and even saying/doing mean things to other kids in class. She is a great verbal communicator around adults but in a group of kids her age she is clearly behind socially (or advanced I suppose) either way she doesn't fit in. She is constantly talking, moving, butting into conversations, saying inappropriate things (either sarcastic or just off the wall comments) at inappropriate times, and can't sit still. Her teacher says she is on track academically. She does well with homework, her issues is that she gets carried away with herself and makes silly mistakes. But she knows the actual content really well. She also seems to have high anxiety. We recently remodeled our bathroom and she got really upset. She kept saying things like "Why do we have to change it?" or "I liked it the way it is!". This coinsided with episodes of pant wetting, in more than one setting. She still has accidents currently, but it's almost like she forgets she has to go because she gets so distracted. I have read the medical assesments for ADHD and she fits almost ALL the symptoms in each list. I plan on taking further action, but I just feel torn between there being problem and my husband and I needing to be "better" parents. I get so frustrated with her because she in her words "forgets" the rules. She has moments of clarity where she is the most well mannered, sweet girl but most of the time she is just TOO much. It makes family activities or outings really difficult. I am just really confused, even if she gets medically diagnosed, I don't know what that means to me. I know the medications really help some people, but it is strange to think about putting chemicals into my daughter to alter her mood or behavior.
